9/1 or 9/3 European Delivery Hotel Info

I wanted to start a new thread and compile a list, in one thread, of people who are or would like to stay at the Marriott Munich. I believe right now we have five people so far. On another thread there was some feedback that the Marriott rates were being inflated for some while others were able to get a competitive rate based on Marriott Rewards Status. In an effort to help drive cost savings for everyone doing ED on 9/1 or 9/3 I would like to aggregate our buy power and call the Marriott with an opportunity to provide a group rate for people that want or are staying during 8/30-9/5. Additionally with this unique experience of 25 m5's being delivered in two days I would hope the Marriott would like to work with us. Maybe in return we get a group photo of vehicles and owners with the Marriott logo in the background posted on the forum as part of the forum coverage of this day.

Please reply to the thread if you are interested.

1. Cmhsam, 8/30 - 9/4, arriving 8/30 at 7:50am via United Airlines
2. Vinsanity, 8/29 - 9/2
3. Lawpurv, arriving 8/31 at 7:50am via United Airlines
4. X5Blair, 9/3-9/5
5. AGS, 9/1
6. BarryB, 8/31-9/5, arriving 8/31 at 7:40am via United Airlines
7. Drewmisha, 9/1 thru 9/3 or 9/4
8. Fastm, 8/30-9/3
9. ArtE63M3, 8/30-9/3
10. RPiM5, 8/31-9/2, arriving 8/31 at 12:30pm via Lufthansa
11. Hsiaochinsan, 9/1 - 9/5
12. Cnicholson, 9/1 - 9/3

I support this as well and so far, I have only made a reservation for the first night of 8/31. Planning on leaving Munich for 9/1 and then will be back in Munich for 9/2 either at the Marriott Munich or the Kempinsky at the airport to facilitate a quicker drop off before my flight.

BTW, In my reservation, I did note that I was part of the BMW M5 ED group from the US (not sure if that helped or not, but hopefully distinguished that others are here for the same task).

I was able to get rooms booked for 8/30-9/3 for 95 euro per night using the corporate code of "bmw". Since we are doing ED we qualify for that discount

Nice what's the corporate code and I hope it applies to other hotels in Munich.

UPDATE: It looks like it has to do with the date of check in. I am on the phone with the hotel now.

Did you reach out to any one and talk about doing a group discount?

The reservations desk said enter "BMW" as the corporate code. When you check in we will need to show them the email/paperwork from BMW indicating business conducted will be Euro Delivery.

FYI guys - I called the Munich Marriott to get the Euro 95 rate applied to my reservation. The receptionist told my that rate is for BMW employees only. Since I had already told her I was traveling for the BMW ED program, she would not apply the rate to my reservation. The BMW ED preferred rate is Euro 149. I got Euro 109 on my reservation because I did not want a package deal - just the room. I believe the Euro 149 rate includes breakfast (and maybe something else as well).

I have been working with Bettina Schulz at the Marriott in Munich. I informed her that I was doing ED and she said that BMW has a certain allotment of rooms for 95 Euro already available. Once this set of rooms is booked they fall back to the rate of 109 Euro. I am negotiating with them to get a block of rooms from 8/30 (for those checking in early) - 9/4 or 9/5 at the discounted rate of 95 Euro. I will update the thread as information becomes available.

I know there is another forum member who was able to call and get them to give his room for the first three days at 95 Euro.
